Have you started noticing that your laptop is getting slower and slower each time you boot it up? This is a common problem and not many people know why this is happening or how to fix the problem. Whether you have a toughbook 53 or the latest macbook, this problem affects everyone. The simple answer to why this is happening is because your computer’s memory is slowly filling up. You’re downloading more files, more applications and your computer is slowly become weighed down by frag and unnecessary applications.
The first step you can take to fix this is to manually go through all your apps and delete everything you don’t use. This might take a while depending on how many apps and files you have, but the more you have the slower your computer tends to get so it’s necessary to do this. Doing this once a week as a preventative measure will help you to save time in the future. There are apps that can do this for you by deleting things that you don’t use as well, if you don’t want to do it manually.
Two applications that every person should have on their laptop is Defraggler and Ccleaner. If you’re not sure exactly what ‘defragging’ means, simply put it refers to the data of a file become split and scattered across your computer’s memory. Since the data pieces aren’t all in one location, it takes longer to load. The defraggler will arrange all the data fragments in a way that is optimized for speed. This will not only free up space on your computer, but it will start running a lot faster. Ccleaner performs a similar function, but is more focused on deleting data fragments that are unnecessary.
